Set in the old west, the sheriff’s wife gives birth to conjoined twins, she dies during labor and the ashamed sheriff decides to hide his children, years later he force the town doctor to surgically separate the kids but during the intervention one of them dies and his evil spirit possess his brother to take revenge.
When I watched this movie the first time, I didn’t sleep for a week, I was 15, not very young, but enough to felt terrified by a diabolical siameses and a “towny” father, the Sheriff, which believed that the Devil was inside his sons and decided to open them “a la brava”, in a little cabana where the doctor had to perform the surgery with no surgical tools but a knife. Mario Almada makes you feel impotence when he tries to convince the Sheriff (Erick del Castillo) to desist; but the ignorance of the Mexican town people is stronger. So, one of the kids die, but he comes back as a diabolical phantom to take back his death. The end is very awful but has a message: Never underestimate a different person.
